  1. Improve Auto-Draft

    I have a number of simple suggestions to improve auto-draft. Obviously, the prevailing strategy for standard leagues is to load up on WR and RB and generally carry only one of every other position. Also, it's a waste to use an 8th or 9th round pick on a K or D instead of high upside bench RB/WR stashes.

    So I propose the following auto-draft settings:
    1. Allow users to select the max number of players that auto-draft will select for each position group (ex. max 1 D, 2 QB, etc.)
    2. Allow users to set the minimum round for each…

  2. Offline drafts should be able to submit and finalize rosters without having to draft a kicker and/or defense.

    Offline drafts should be able to submit and finalize rosters without having to draft a kicker and/or defense. When drafts occur in week 1 or week 2, there are too many variable in starters, and it hurts rosters to have to draft a kicker and/or defense when they aren't needed for at least 2 weeks.

  3. Longer than 2 mins draft option

    Some players are newer and need more time selecting. As commissioner we should have the option to set 3 or 4 minute draft times...been in yahoo for years. Would like to have this implemented

  4. Draft order incorrect on day of draft

    I randomized the draft order on 7/16/2018 and on the day of the draft, the order was incorrect within the draft room. We ended up having to draft offline and I had to change the teams manually through the commish changes option. Can you please explain why the draft order was incorrect. Me and my league members would like an explanation in order to prevent this in the future. Thank you.

  5. Pre-draft ranking sorting

    It would be great to be able to sort through the player list data based on a pulldown option of "pre-draft rankings". That way you can look at your rankings based on position at a point other than in a mock draft or real draft. Would help you set your tiers internally

  6. fantasy auto drafts need a MAJOR change in settings

    I had Amari Cooper well above Carson Wentz in my pre-draft rankings, yet, my team auto drafted Wentz above Cooper. This must be for positional reasons, but this is idiotic.

    There needs to be SOMETHING where you can just say "My Pre-Ranks Only" instead of the computer choosing when and where you need a position...This has happened in EVERY auto draft i've ever done...

    I want the guys i had ranked - not position players to fill out my roster...Why can't this be changed?

    I don't even want to get into the computer drafting a Kicker when i've got guys…

  7. Allow users to set preferences for auto-draft

    Allow users a long list of preferences for auto-draft. For example, when setting my custom pre-draft rankings, let me say that I don’t want a certain player or position to be drafted before a certain round. NFL.com offers this.

  8. Setting randomize draft order now...

    After setting league to setting randomize draft order now. Provide link, option under "Draft" tab or section on league home pace to list the draft order. Also ensure that the order doesn't change once its randomized. Yahoo chat tech said take a picture as the "system may change the order", then manually set the order as what the randomized one was. Thanks, been playing on yahoo since 2001 so hopefully this helps.

  9. IDP rankings

    For IDP leagues, maybe you could rank defensive players based on the previous year's fantasy totals? Sure, rookies would not be ranked but at least when auto-picking the defensive rankings would have some semblance of order. Our league uses IDP and we are not going to change, so any improvement to the draft rankings for IDP leagues is definitely welcomed!

  10. Yahoo should create customized Slow Draft option...

    Create live drafts that have a customized timer and notifications. Simple right! Yahoo! already does both, why not combine the two. This would allow leagues such as mine to do a slow draft which a manager has hours or days to select a player then when they do the next manager would receive a notification that they are on the clock. Currently my league does this through GoogleDocs and texts. Yahoo! would be able to charge for this ability I'm sure. The other platforms allow you to do this but it costs a lot and I really like to use…

  11. Trolls have destroyed the on-demand draft.

    Your techs need to start doing some blocking. The on- demand draft has been non functional for 3 days. They fill the league, leave draft make nullify every one of them. Every. single. time.

  12. More flexibility for commissioners. I mistakenly forgot to remove 2 additional bench spots from

    Subtraction of spots post draft. I was unaware that you could only remove spots form a league before the draft. I entered the results of an offline draft and forgot to remove two bench spots (we are going from 7 to 5 with the addition of 2 teams) and now I have to completely reset the draft and redo all my work.

  13. Increase the cap on running backs drafted

    Since you added a flex spot it doesn't make sense that you can draft 8 WRs and only 6RBs. You can start the same number of each so why can't you draft to the same limit?

  14. You NEED to have better PAUSE controls during live draft

    What a disaster switching over to Yahoo league. What is the reason for only allowing 5 pauses for a total of 15 minutes? And why can't I start the draft back up again by clicking START. Why do I have to wait the full 5 minutes? Look, there are all kinds of reasons a live draft party needs to pause/start their draft - especially when using your system for the first time. GIVE BETTER PAUSE CONTROLS!

  15. Allow the commissioner the ability to see who has submitted their keeper options. Also adding the keeper tools to the mobile app.

    Allow the commissioner the ability to see who has submitted their keeper options. This would be extremely helpful and would solve sending reminders to everyone.

  16. Pre-Draft Rankings

    I have been playing Yahoo Fantasy football for 15 years and I have never had this issue. For some reason our pre-rankings are quarterback heavy with the top 20 pics as QB's. Our point distribution has been the same every year, and this is the first time we have experienced this. Is there a way to have the defualt pre-ranking the same as the AVG draft pick. Has anybody else had this issue? If this is a league issue I think it should be corrected. I would just like to know why this has changed and what I can do…

  18. Limits on Drafting players

    Currently in public leagues you have limits on drafting players. This not only makes mock drafts pointless but it also skews the ADP. If people aren’t able to draft players they want because of these limits we cannot get an accurate representation of when these players are actually being drafted.

  19. Draft changes

    Yahoo needs to make the live draft more flexible. Currently the commish can only allow up to 2 minutes between picks. Why? What if my league want 5 minutes? Why does Yahoo care so much to restrict it? Why does Yahoo care if its 2 minutes or 2 days? IT'S AUTOMATED!

    Along the same lines, during a live draft the commish can pause the draft 5 or 10 times maximum. Why? Last year when the 2 minute rule from above came into play I was able to pause the draft to allow folks to catch up but I hit the…

  20. Please give the commissioner unlimited pauses for online drafts.

    Please allow the commissioner to pause the draft an unlimited amount of times for the online draft. In a league where we can trade draft picks - it's annoying when the commissioner is unable to pause the draft to work out the players being picked up.
